      Slowplaying is rarely good.

      Preflop is all good. You probably should've bet the flop, because he's going to call with a huge array of worse hands. If he folds then it's unfortunate but he had nothing and the only way he was going to continue was if he made a hand that beat yours. You need to gradually build the pot. My line here would be bet/bet/bet.

      It's ok to slowplay on flop, there are not many draws out except gutshot. So I am also going for slowplay but bet bigger the turn, near potsize.
